As Chicago braces for a heat wave this weekend, the unthinkable has happened to the Animal Welfare League, an open admission shelter in the city that turns no animal away. Vandals broke one of the big air conditioning units and damaged the other. The vandals also stole the copper pipping and coils from the units.
This location of the Animal Welfare League alone takes in over 5,000 abandoned, neglected and abused animals a year. They have been serving the community for more than 70 years now and due to the economy has been facing hard economic times to keep up with the overwhelming numbers of animals in need coming to the facility. Rescue group Trio Animal Foundation is assisting the Animal Welfare League on this emergency situation to keep up with the dire situation.
The other AC unit that might be able to be repaired will cost an estimated $20,000 to fix…simply not affordable on these two groups small budget for all the do to help unwanted animals.
An emergency AC/Security Fund is being set up from the Trio Animal Foundation to help the Animal Welfare League during this crisis. Or they are looking for a guardian angel to replace the units.
Restricted donations for this emergency can be made:
